Price: $200.00
Pros: Ease of wiring, gives sound to the rear seats, sound quality far better than stock 3" dash mounted speakers, great dome lights, "looks like it belongs to the Jeep"
Cons: Provided screws strip easily, sound not as loud as expected, fuse wire was 2 feet short after routing.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 6 SPEAKER SOUND BAR 87-02 WRANG-BLACK 792515
$200 +shipping. Quadratec.

Installed in a '91 YJ.

The speakers look great and appear to be well constructed. The screws provided stripped very easily (VDP provided wood screws to mount the bracket to sound bar and non-tapping sheet metal screws to mount it all to the roll bar). I purchased 2.5" bolts, lock washers, nuts and wall anchors from Sears Appliance store. I used these to secure the mounting brackets to the soundbar and the whole unit to the roll bars. Wiring is too easy to mention. The only drawback to wiring is that the lead going to the fuse box was about 2 feet short (easily compensated for).

The sound quality is far better than the 3" dash mounted speakers. At normal levels the sound doesn't bleed over into surrounding traffic but can be easily heard by the passengers on both urban roads and highways.

Additionally it's great to finally have a dome light. There are two independent bi-directional lights that can be aimed left or right. At night they are bright enough to see the floor boards yet soft enough to be used by the rear seat passengers without reducing driver's night vision.

Great addition to the stock 3" dash-plate speakers and a recommended purchase.

**Update**

Two months later: Head room has not been an issue, sound quality is good, quality of sound reaching the rear seats is great. Oh yea...they're water resistant too (I found that out the hard way). Now I'm conjuring up a way to rig the dome lights to the door lamp.

**Update**

Four months later: Been good to go all summer. Recommended product.

**Update**

Almost a full year later. We're very happy with the VDP soundbar. Very pleased.

Comments: 6" subs, 4" midrange, and 2" tweeters. Sounds as good as my stock soundbar did. I thought i was upgrading... I wish i hadn't switched out the wiring. Doesn't get as loud as the stock soundbar did.

Pros: Easy install, sounds amazing, and weather proof
Cons: center lights are a little flimsy and not very bright
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The wiring was easy to install, and bolt to the rollbar easily. the wiring splices right into the existing harness. then has a simple plug on the the speaker end. the color of the fabric matched the interior color matched exactly. comes with hardware for a TJ and YJ.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Slightly better sounding than stock, more range.
Cons: Guess it requires an amp because it doesn't get too loud before it reverbs out
Recommended? Yes

Comments: When I bought it I guess I expected the speakers to be louder than stock, after I installed my Marine Sony cd/mp3/radio, It didn't sound too much better than the stock soundbar. I might have to uninstall/reinstall using wire connectors instead of the old electrical tape.

Price: $176.00
Pros: Great Sound, Fairly Easy Install
Cons: Not As Loud As One Would Think, No Weather Protector Available
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Not plug-and-play, will require line splicing or re-wiring, not as loud as i thought but much better than stock, sound quality is great but I'd like it louder. Other than taking care of wires, it bolted right in. Sits higher than stock soundbar but did not affect the hardtop. Very happy.

Pros: Decent sound
Cons: Not the highest quality speakers
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a good starting soundbar to work from. My older model sounds alright with the speakers it comes with, personally i am going to replace the 6 inch speakers with higher quality aftermarket ones. The bar itself is great, compact and fits well on the roll bars. Not the best but not the worst.
